Merkur Double Edge Safety Razor, Straight Cut, Extra Long Handle, Chrome 23C

Undoubtedly the most popular razor for those making their first foray into shaving with a safety razor, it is a blend of timeless style, function and German craftsmanship. Pairing a mild geometry (bend of the blade) with a longer knurled handle, the weight and proportions appeal to many, as it has a similarity and comfort to vintage razors that makes this one of the most often chosen for a first safety razor.

Merkur makes some of the world's best safety razors! Basic to fancy, simple to adjustable, there is a razor for everyone! Manufactured in Solingen by Dovo, their exacting standards mean you get a great shave and a long-lasting product.

The machined handle is perfect for those who like to shave in the shower. The handle's texture helps you get a secure hold even when your hands are wet. I like it because it looks pretty damn cool. I carry a gold razor in my travel kit, but I use a chrome one at home. Its old school look will never fade. Includes one Merkur razor blade.
